About PCP

We work on social sector development, on initiatives for improving maternal and child health, family planning, nutrition, sanitation, and safe drinking water. We especially focus on accessibility of these services for poor and marginalized populations who are disproportionately affected by the negative impact of high population growth on these sectors. The adverse impacts are exacerbated under calamitic conditions such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Additional Funding for Family Planning

We need to spend more on family planning services to fulfill the unmet need. Its a win-win proposition: spending more on family planning will mean spending less on reproductive health services and better health for mothers and children. Pakistan must take up this opportunity if we are to achieve sustainable population growth levels.

Voucher for Rights-based, Voluntry Family Planning

The international evidence shows that vouchers can play a critical role in improving access of poor and marginalized women to family planning and reproductive health services, of which they are generally deprived. By recognizing their right to these services, the voucher schemes enable the women and their husbands to take important decisions regarding the size of their family and spacing of children.
